Who I Am
A human, insatiably curious about the nature and mysteries of our embodied experience. A teacher and writer of soul, heart and healing, I hold a doctoral degree in Depth Psychology with emphasis in Jungian and Archetypal Studies from Pacifica Graduate Institute. I consider myself a scholarly mystic, who is devoted, creatively, to finding the sacredness in everyday life. I am a true believer in the power of the imagination and the reality of the unseen world. I am in relentless pursuit of the wisdom and language of the heart, which has led me to a deep and inevitable love affair with the poetic.
Why I Do It
I believe in the notion of vocation as a 'calling' — bringing our unique voice and essence out in the world. And these are the paths that chose me. I, somehow, am just along for the ride. Trying, at every turn, to listen a bit more deeply.
